Notes: -found in a black oak savanna, single specimen growing in soil

-moderately indented white pileus 30mm in diameter, smooth/dry surface, undulating margin

, inserted insititious base

-spores taken from gill for slide and spores found were shaped as elliptical or possibly amygdaliform with circular object inside, with no ornimentations,
